From Here to Santo Domingo

Score by Talon Velarde

From Here to Santo Domingo documents the arroyos connecting Santa Fe and Santo Domingo and is presented in a structuralist, flash-film format, sequenced in geographical order in a loop. The physical transference of supplies and wealth that results from flooding becomes a cultural and historical one; the effects of a massive flood in the 1940s are evident today, though oral history wanes and memories fade. Societal and cultural intersections with the environment become apparent, creating an ambiguous space between indifferent chaos and nature mysticism.
